Simple and easy to use, no stropping, no honing!
This is the Böker Olivewood Shavette. It's made in Solingen, Germany so expect the usual German attention to detail and superior engineering.
Do not confuse this brand of Shavette with cheap imports from China and Pakistan. This is the real McCoy. The handle is made from waterproofed Olivewood, the blade holder is made from stainless steel. Böker has been making razors, knives and swords since 1869.
Olivewood is very hard, non-porous, strong and durable. It also benefits from a beautiful grain. Additionally, It will not absorb odours or bacteria and it does not stain.
The plastic blade insert which secures the razor blade reassuringly slides precisely into place and doesn't wobble as the cheap ones do.
Most men have a hankering to try shaving with a cut throat razor, what puts many off is the faffing around associated with this way of shaving. The Böker Olivewood Shavette offers a real alternative. No stropping, no honing, when the blade dulls simply pop a new one in.
The Böker Olivewood Shavette is compatible with standard double edge razor blades and One Piece Long Miraki Blades.
Our advice is to opt for Miraki Blades, they are easier to load into the Shavette, they are more rigid than safety razor blades and they deliver a much better shave.
It comes with two plastic blade holders, one for each type of blade and one free double edge razor blade. Finally, also included are printed instructions in English and German on how to change the blade and care for the razor.
Length: 160mm, blade length 65mm
Handle: Treated, waterproof Olivewood
Compatible with long Miraki and all double edge, safety razor blades.
With care! Take your time, use plenty of high-quality shaving cream, or soap so the blade can glide effortlessly over the surface of the skin. As soon as you feel a blade tugging on your bristles it's time to replace it. Shave in short strokes.
After use, rinse the razor clean in running water and dry with a cotton towel.
Forget staring off with a cheap Chinese shavette, you will only be disappointed. If you want to try the cut throat shaving experience without breaking the bank, the Böker Olivewood Shavette is the one to go for. Superbly engineered and very pleasing on the eye.
